Meet Melissa Gruesser, Account Manager for Melink T&B

Business Unit and Job Title

Account Manager for Test and Balance

What does your job entail?

My job is to maintain and develop, existing and new customer relationships within the test and balance industry.

What is your personal philosophy?

My personal philosophy is to take responsibility for your own actions, and to be respectful of others.

What did you do before coming to Melink?

Before working at Melink, I was an Account Specialist for Sweco, a manufacturing company located in Florence, KY.

What is your favorite aspect of working at Melink?

Honestly, my co-workers. I work with an amazing team of people that are not only supportive, but fun and energetic. We always have a blast and get the job done.

 What do you like to do in your time off?

On my off time I enjoy spending time with my family. During the summer we love to go swimming and grill by the pool.

Tell us something that might surprise us about you.

I love video games; I have ever since I was a little kid. During college I worked at Gamestop for several years before moving on to my “grownup” job. I still remember playing NES Mario with my dad in the living room floor on Christmas morning.

What are you most proud of?

I’m most proud of my daughter, Hailey. She just turned 9 this past weekend. She’s one of the most caring people I’ve ever met; she has a huge heart. She’s extremely smart and she loves math and science. I know one day she’ll go on to do tremendous things.

What are your hopes for our industry?

I hope one day that all organizations see the value that Melink brings to the world of sustainability.

Motto or personal mantra?

If you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived.

Do you collect anything?

I collect movies. I used to collect a lot more when I was younger, but I still pick up a new on every now and then. Scary movies have always been my favorite.
